Abstract
This volume provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of inflammatory bowel disease and its management through the use of telemedicine applications. The book reviews barriers to successful outcomes in patients with IBD and offers a rationale for how self-management and telemedicine approaches can improve care in chronic illnesses such as IBD. This volume also includes a summary of the burden of telephone encounters in patients with IBD, characteristics of frequent callers to the office, outcomes associated with high telephone use, and strategies to provide education via telephone to patients with IBD. Prior literature on implementation of teleconsultation in research and clinical practice, as well as mobile applications used to track symptoms, quality of life, diet, and medication use in IBD are also explored in the book. Written by experts in the field, Telemanagement of Inflammatory Bowel Disease is a valuable resource for gastroenterologists, surgeons, and other clinicians dealing with, and interested in, this novel adjunct to routine care for inflammatory bowel disease.
